We stayed here for a romantic evening whilst touring South Africa visiting relatives. I wasn't overly impressed by Amanzimtoti itself but that might have been due to the bad weather we were experiencing at the time. We asked for a table to be set up in our room on the balcony for dinner. This was effortlessly done and we enjoyed... More

We booked the Honeymoon Suite. The highly punted spa bath did not work.

This "hot" water was luke warm at best, and within 5 minutes was ice cold. The shell of the spa bath... More

During our stay, there was no water for 2 of our 3 nights. I felt that because the water was out the previous day, the management should have called and gave us the choice of continuing with our reservations or cancelling it. We even upgraded to a room with a kitchen and was not able to cook due to no... More

The therapist I had was Violet and I had booked a leg wax, facial and foot massage. I changed one of my treatments upon arrival and this was done with no... More

I was surprised when i got an immediate booking when i called in the morning of sunday for an appointment on that same day, very friendly staff .The Spa situated inside the hotel needs to upgrade themselves and learn new massage techniques, the therapists should train a little bit more and better their massaging methods. Lunch on the terrace was... More

The hotel is in a boring area that literally has nothing nearby! It is better to stay on the North coast of Durban! You have to have a car to get around from this hotel and you are forced to eat at their restaurant as there are no restaurants in the area besides fast food places. The restaurant food is... More
